These keto teriyaki chicken wings are so sticky and tangy that you’ll swear they aren’t low-carb – but they really are keto-friendly.

Keto Teriyaki Chicken Wings Recipe

Every once in awhile I make a recipe where I even surprise myself! It happened with this recipe. You see, Chinese food is another weakness of mine. I just love all the things – the noodles, the rice, the teriyaki sauce. Sadly, all of those things are full of sugars and carbs and don’t work with my low-carb lifestyle. 

Something had to be done. 

Keto Teriyaki Chicken Wings Recipe

So I decided to make a keto teriyaki chicken wings recipe. These are so good that they can even be your entire meal for dinner. 

Keto Teriyaki Wings – Low-Carb Party Food

These chicken wings are so filling and good for you that you can serve them for dinner. Or, you can bring them out during football season or other parties you host. Everyone will nosh on them, crazy about the sweet sauce.

They won’t even know that they are eating keto food. 

For some reason, keto food has a bad reputation for having weird aftertastes or textures. These taste just like their sugary counterparts. 

Perfect Low-Carb Appetizer 

Chicken wings are normally served as appetizers because there just isn’t that much meat on a wing. But if you buy some chick stips you can serve them as a main dish. 

Whether you bring these wings out at dinner or your next party, they are perfect to eat any time at all. You don’t even need to make up an excuse!

How To Make Keto Teriyaki Chicken Wings Ahead

Another fantastic thing about this recipe is that you can save tons of time by making them ahead of time. I’ll show you how to store them in either the freezer or the refrigerator. 

More Keto Takeout Recipes

Here are some more of my favorite takeout-inspired recipes that are amazingly low-carb! 

Keto Teriyaki Chicken Wings Recipe

These chicken wings will last about 3 months in the freezer. If you are going to freeze them, first bake them and let the cool off completely. Then, freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet or plate. After all of the wings are frozen (which takes about 45 minutes to an hour) you can store them all in a zippered freezer bag. 

When you are ready to reheat them, let them thaw in the refrigerator the night before. Then, just put them in the oven at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until they are heated completely. 

Reheating them in the microwave changes their texture. They lose their crispiness. You can do it, I just don’t recommend it. 

If you want to store them in the refrigerator, just keep them in an airtight container with a lid. They will last about a week in the fridge. I always recommend reheating wings in the oven because the microwave makes them have a soggy exterior. 

 

What To Serve With Teriyaki Wings

What you serve with them depends on the occasion. If these are a party dish, then serve them with a veggie tray and maybe even some low-carb chips and dip. 

If you are making them for dinner, then I suggest serving them with cauliflower rice and a side of green beans or broccoli for an easy keto takeout alternative. 

 

The Best Sweeteners for Keto Teriyaki Sauce

I used a few of my favorite sugar-free sweeteners on these wings. I found that the combination of these sweeteners turned out the best, without any aftertaste or funky texture.

Both Lankanto maple-flavored syrup and Swerve brown sugar substitute. If you don’t have both, you can use just the Swerve, but it won’t have the same texture or taste. I recommend using both of them together. 

Is Xanthan Gum Keto 

Don’t let the name fool you. Xanthan gum is an ingredient that lots of people use to help all of the sugar-free ingredients mix together properly. This is what gives my wings that delicious texture. 

Xanthan gum is sugar-free and carb-free. It’s definitely a keto-friendly ingredient.
